Où nous trouver ?
Chassagne-Montrachet « La Canière »

Characteristics

Soil type: clayey-limestone
Location:  The plot is at the bottom of the hillside, near the Champ Gain and Cailleret premier cru areas.  
Age of vines: planted in 1962 and 1964
Grape variety: Pinot noir

Vinification and ageing
After harvesting by hand, the grapes are sorted on a vibrating table to remove dry berries, leaf debris and stalks. They then pass to another sorting table for the removal of any grapes that are unripe, damaged or showing signs of rot. The sound grapes are pressed to facilitate the extraction of colour and flavours. Before passing on to the vat, the grapes are stemmed: the removal of the stalks reduces the astringency of the future wine.
Fermentation is begun slowly, using native yeasts, and continues for between 15 and 20 days. The wine is then aged in barrels for a lengthy period of three years..

Keeping properties
We recommend you wait at least two to five years but, if you have the necessary patience, the wine is best drunk between ten and fifteen years of age.

Tasting notes
This wine is a brilliant ruby colour, with purple highlights. The nose features red berry fruit aromas (strawberry, blackcurrant). The purity and subtlety of the grape is apparent on the palate.
The elegant tannins melt delicately away in the lingering finish.  

Food and wine pairing
This Chassagne-Montrachet would be the ideal accompaniment for a  tournedos Rossini.

Serving temperature
Between 14 and 16°C. The wine should be uncorked one hour prior to serving to allow it to breathe.
